Join David Linthicum for an in-depth discussion in this video Necessary skills, tools, and processes, part of Cloud Architecture: Design Decisions (2017).
- [Instructor] So let's talk about the skills…you need to be a good cloud architect.…There are specific skills that you need to understand.…There seems some basic tools…that you need to understand as well,…as well as kind of core components of existing systems.…You need to know a little bit of security,…a little bit of database,…you need to know a little bit of networking,…a little bit of application development,…a little bit of DevOps,…and lots of things I'm probably not mentioning…that may be important to your particular enterprise.…Good cloud architecture is about taking…data, security, service design...…
These are just listing three.…It also should be governance and performance management…and DevOps and app dev test.…And the ability to understand how all of things fit together…really is at the component of the source…of what good architectural practices are…and good architects do.…You'll find that if you're one of those people…that likes to specialize in something…and be really the drop dead expert…in a particular programming language or database,…
This course is targeted at IT professionals who have a basic understanding of the cloud and are ready to move on to creating a cloud architecture. David Linthicum begins with the business case and requirement patterns, and then moves onto mapping requirements to individual architecture concepts. There are multiple aspects to consider: storage, processing, governance, management and monitoring, security, performance, and more. David also includes discussion of advanced topics such as serverless architectures and containers. Watch and learn how to make sense of today's requirements, and plan your cloud-based architecture to scale with what your company needs to succeed tomorrow.
